    I just finished your books – Tending Dandelions and Joey’s Song. I want to thank you for affirming my decision to ‘Let go and let God’. It has been more than difficult but you know that. Our lives differ in some aspects but similar
    in others. Thank you for your gut reaching, love filled moments about life with Joey and Rick. I have two children also – one who seems perfect in everything she touches abd one who struggles with everything he touches. I would like to receive any emails, blog info, etc that you share. I liked your FB page. Hugs from another Mom who undersrandscwhatvit is all about.
